Your friends might be in England or may be just next-door neighbors, but they are all just a few clicks Life has changed a lot for millions of young people who like to make friends online around the world. Whether you use chat room, QQ, MSN or OICQ, you are in this group.
“I don’t often talk with my parents or grandparents, but I talk a lot with my friends on QQ,” said Tears in Hand, an online name used by a girl student in China.
QQ is the biggest messaging service in China now. A report from the company which developed QQ says that 4 million people used it one Saturday night in October. And probably Tears in Hand was one of them. “I log in on Friday nights, Saturdays or Sundays, when I feel bored. I usually spend about ten hours chatting online every week,” she said. “But I never talk with strangers, especially boys or men.” Even though she likes chatting, she is careful about making friends with strangers online because she knows that she shouldn’t believe in the strangers online easily. Many people like to meet online when they feel they have got to know someone very well. Tears in Hand once met one online friend face to face and they went to a football match together.
A boy named Blue Sky dislikes QQ users, “I used to chat on QQ, but I found most people are talking about foolish things. Now I only chat in English in MSN with my Japanese or American friends because I want to learn more about foreign cultures. So he spends very little time chatting on QQ and he thinks it’s a waste of time and money. He said, “If you are addicted to it, you can’t concentrate on your lessons.
